The House By The Sea (12A)
Nominated for César Awards, France 2018 – Best Supporting Actress
Winner of two Venice Film Festival Awards 2017
By a little bay near Marseilles lies a picturesque villa owned by an old man. His three children have gathered by his side for his last days: Angela, an actress living in Paris, Joseph, who has just fallen in love with a girl half his age and Armand, the only one who stayed behind in Marseilles to run the family’s small restaurant. It’s time for them to weigh up what they have inherited of their father’s ideals and the community spirit he created in this magical place. The arrival, at a nearby cove, of a group of boat people will throw these moments of reflection into turmoil.
This programme includes the Talk at 1pm-2pm and a Screening at 2.30pm. To book for the film only on this day, please contact the Box Office.
